Best PKD adaptation ever
17 May 2011 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

I was worried about having too high an expectation of this film since I had been waiting so long to see it and considering the fact that it's the first time anyone's every attempted to tackle PKD's semi-autobiographical works...well, I was not disappointed. This film was the best book-to-film adaptation of PKD's work I've seen yet. A Scanner Darkly was the closest anyone's come before. The fact that this was a "low budget" film actually helped it stay true to the book since there was no need to insert the obligatory car chase scenes, etc., expected in the big budget Hollywood movies that are so disappointed these days.

We got to meet the director after the movie and I could already tell by watching the movie that he was an avid PKD fan. He was very personable and answered all of our questions about the movie. It was very cool to get to discuss such an amazing film with the director in person! I can't wait to get the DVD so I can watch it many more times and show it to friends.

Great job and looking forward to more PKD films from John Alan Simon!
